Augud ri, 1796.
By the J'f'ph, from Liverpool, -we have received a
number of London papers :—the following from
the Morning Chr'oniclcof May 19, appears to be
the only interejling article contained in them.
LONDON, May 19.
It appears that the SifTatisfaftion of the House
of Representatives at the conduit of the President
in not laying before them the proceedings relative
to the late treaty concluded with this country, is
by no means removed- They consider their condi
tut.onal privileges violated by his refulai, and their
refentraent of the supposed affront may have the
effect to dedroy the good undei(landing between
the government and legislature, aodjierhapS excite
a ipirt of difeftnieni, which it will require all the
wisdom and prudence of thje Prelidetit to appease.
But the lad reiliition, both in its imputed cause
and probable confequj-ices, is more dire&ly inte
retting to this country. Since the beginning of
war the complaints of America on the coriduft or
ourcruifers in the Welt-Indies, have been loud and
orgent; yet, whatever gnfwer may have been made
to the remonstrances of the United States, the
continuance of the injustice augurs no disposition
fairly and completely to take away all appearance
°f Sggreffion, and every ground of dispute. Of
the madness and Impolicy of allowing a just cause
of complaint to remain, which, from the date of
the minds of some people in America, would be
converted into the ground of a quarrel to be dread
ed equally by both countries, it is unnecefiary to
fay a word. To inflame their minds at such a mo
ment as this, by toleiating the injuries of which
they complain,' is a conduct of which no confide.-
ration of annoying the power of which we are at
war <?an juftify. If the sentiments of the House
of Reprclentatives are hostile to the treaty, yet
their refufnl to give it their authority is placed, not
upon its difadvaniages and its facrifices, which
declare they would have waved, but upon the at
tacks made by the Britilh government npon the
freedom of their commerce, and the rights of their
neutrality. The reasons of the resolutions they
ave passed, have been fairly and openly dated and
avowed. 'It remains for the miniftera of this coun
try, either to remove the oflenfible cause, or to
turntfh additional arguments for their refufal. By
denying that redress which, if their facts be ad
nutted, the United States of America are entitled
'oc aim, the feeds of aconted mod calamitous to
thjscountry, may be Town ; and the minister Ihould
recollect that he tray hazard something more than 1
' e bare ratification of a treaty, from which he '
turned so much credit, and predicted so much ad
vantage. If past experience be eonfulted, this ,
I - V-'- -- - - - *!§EL
country, we may be allured, will be indebted more
, moderation of the American government,
in avoiding the threatened rapture, than to the'
wisdom of our own adu inillration ; for who but
the prefeht ministers would, by aggrefilons fubfe
quent to the treaty, thus endanger the good 08-
e derftandirg which had already been so nearly inter
rupted, byre;i!wing injuries not yet forgotten, and
awakening-pafDons not properly allayed.

ll From the COLUMBIAN CENT IN EL.
The fuccefles of the French on the Rhine, a3
well as in Italy, are confirmed ; and the wreath
- that entwines the brow of Jourdan, threatens to
i equal in verdure riiat which encircles the head of
i Buonaparte. In all the vic'iflitudes of the French
Revolution,—in all the druggies of parties for pre
', eminence—the French armies have remained infltx
- ifely pure. We have ofteo mentioned, with applause,
e the exhibit ions of their patriotic, and of their en
- tire devotion to the cause of their country. Nor
will we now be indebted to any other for in elegant
eulogium on them, than one of their own country
men—who forcibly felt what his heart'didated his
a tongue to utter. We have procured the trarfla
n tion of the following
■e EULOGY ON THE FRENCH ARMY,
And we present it to our readers as a monument
of brilliant imagery—of correct and chade fancy—
which does honor to the translator, and places him
e far above the cavils of envy, or the fq.uibs of party
t politicians. ,
e The Eulogy pronounced at Paris, is as follows
s \v HAT an immortalluftre is filed by the laurels
!• of vi&ory ; especially when they are engrafted on
r the scion of the beloved Olive. Oh ! thou '
e daughter of Heaven ! Divinity cherished by maii

f your crowns—they will go to meet the conquer

Already the adonifhed universe pays you the
j tribute of eulogium and admiration due io your
- warlike achievements :—Even your enemies cf
i teem and fear you.—They celebrate your courage,
• your condancy, your attachment to your country, 1
t and the example you have furnilhed of military :
t Oh ! may the charms of glory, like the laurels of 1
, viiftory, deck the brow of the patriot-soldier ! How
r sublime ; how truly -worthy of envy, is that noble.at
tachment of the Republican, whose terrible arm de
fends his habitation, his relations, his friends, and the '
: country which gave him birth. He does not echo the
' ftriek of vengeance and fury—terrible in combat, he
strikes the haughty, carries terror into the battalions of (
| the enemy, and overturns squadrons : —Magnanimous
art of viitory 1 Humanity meets him npon the homi
cidal theatre ; where, united, they console and relieve
' the conquered f»e, and repair the affirightful mifchiefs
produced by the fatality of circumstances, or by the 1
terribie laws of necessity. <
Where is the citizen, who does not speak of our 1
, warriors with affedlion ? Who does not fee all the im- ]
portance of the facrifices they have made to their coun
try? Who is not astonished at that hereic courage ; at
that coEftancy, and tbofe surprizing exploits, which '
the annals of hiflory will repeat to our Uteft posterity ! f
He fees in our br;ve brothers in arms, his friends, his '
children, his whole family.—He (beds tears upon their 1
e wounds—Jirticlprifei tfc<sir privation?, fie follows them i
into combat—by his wifiies hp would arrest the fan- ,
e ' guinary ball, and preserve therii all to their country. (
, t In the raid ft of snows, and of froft—upon moun
tains of ice, surrounded by enemies—keeping on thy
earth—deprived of fufficient fubCltence, what has '
'■ been the rondnft of those Warriors! No fooaer does
thechrionof war found, than they seize their terrible I
d arms, and fly to vi&ory, or to death ! What noble mo- <
tives animate them ! What produces in their fouls this
lively enthusiasm I It istheiove ofoui country, which
doubles our physical force, multiplies brilliant anions,
produces patriots, heroes and great men. It is this
noble virtue—the aggregate of every other, without
which the warrior is only an zflaffin or a vile slave—
which guides the Republican soldier, and renders him
terrible to the enemies of his country.
Where is the citizen who can fill the heroic triim- I
n pet, whose masculine force can celebrate foch i«i
---e achievements ? Come forward, the patriot I
'* Writers; paint in traits of fire, theheroifru of our
